As a Senior Technical Project Manager, you'll have full autonomy to own the planning and implementation of technical projects, facilitating the definition of project scope, goals and results! You'll develop full scale project plans, defining tasks and resource requirements, coordinating and supporting project staff, planning and scheduling project timelines and managing budgets.

You'll consistently and accurately monitor and report on project progress with partners up to a senior level, implementing and managing project changes and interventions to achieve desired outcomes.

If your preferred location isn’t listed, but you feel this role could be right for you, please connect with the recruiter to discuss in more detail.

The must haves

In order to be considered, you must have the following experience;

  • Demonstrable significant experience leading complex technical projects

  • Experience in utilising a formal project management methodology such as Prince2, APMP, ITIL qualification, Risk Management Qualification or 6 Sigma

  • Specific experience of delivering to clients directly, and delivery of significant products as part of major initiatives and client programmes.

  • A demonstrable record of resolving issues that threatened to delay or affect project goals (resource, budget or partner in nature).

We'd also love you to bring;

  • Experience building relationships with internal and external senior partners

  • Comfortable where the desired outcome is understood but the route to get there is less certain!

What's in it for you?

As you're already a valued member of the Virgin Media or O2 family, you'll know lots about the amazing stuff we do to take care of our people.

As we're prioritising our amazing internal talent, this role is only eligible for internal applicants or applications from our contingent workforce.

This role is a level 5.

We can chat to you one on one about how your overall benefits may change, if you're successful.

Next steps

If you think you've got what it takes to make a move, we'd love to hear from you.

It's important that you take the time to submit a formal application via Workday.

Once you've submitted an application the next steps of the process, if successful, are likely to include a competency based interview.

Thanks for your patience in the meantime and if you do have burning questions, you can drop Jason Lane or Nic Heywood a note.
